2024 will be a slow year for DC in theaters, with only one film expected to have an extended run at the box office, while the others will be available to purchase or stream at home.
This is due to the DCEU coming to a close in 2023 with four total live-action films releasing, including Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom on December 22.
Joker: Folie à Deux – October 4, 2024
Originally conceived as a standalone film without sequels, Phillips was going to consider a sequel based on the film’s success and Phoenix’s willingness. Ultimately, the first film over-performed and Folie à Deux is now the only live-action DC film hitting theaters in 2024.
Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths (Parts 1, 2, & 3) – 2024
It was reported that the first part of Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths is slated for release on January 24, 2024, available on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD formats.
During the beginning of Infinite Earths, the Anti-Monitor is set free in the DC Multiverse, destroying its Earths, while the Monitor tries to recruit heroes from different dimensions but it doesn’t end well for him as Braniac recruits other villains to control other Earths.
Part 2 and 3 are expected to also be released during 2024, likely spread out during the calendar year, and will mark the end of DC’s on-screen Tomorrowverse.
Watchmen – 2024
It remains uncertain whether the animated movie will present a fresh narrative within the Watchmen universe akin to the 2019 series or offer a completely new adaptation of Alan Moore’s comic book story.
Outside the primary DC universe, Watchmen depicts retired superheroes who, having significantly shaped their world’s political landscape, are drawn out of retirement when one of their own is killed, forcing them back into action.
BONUS – Batman Azteca: Choque de Imperios
The story follows Yohualli Coatl, a young Aztec boy, seeking to avenge his father’s murder by Spanish Conquistadors, training with the bat god Tzinacan to confront the invasion and protect King Moctezuma’s temple.
